Retinal Research Institute – Phoenix
Retinal Consultants of Arizona has a strong commitment to medical research and the advancement of treatments for retinal diseases. Unfortunately, there are many medical conditions that do not have a “cure.” Although we provide the latest technology available to treat retinal disorders, we are actively involved in multiple clinical research trials in hopes of expanding our treatment options for our patients. RCA physicians contribute to the advancement of new therapies by participating in clinical research studies.
We have been participating in clinical trials since 1998 and are proud that the Retinal Research Institute has become one of the nation’s largest retina & vitreous-specific research organizations. In many instances, RCA is the only retina group in Arizona to offer patient participation in multiple studies addressing multiple eye conditions
